Compass Community Services
Virtual - Based out of Guelph

This is a remote volunteer position supporting the Guelph-Wellington Community. All shifts and training are completed remotely, therefore, residence in Guelph-Wellington is not a requirement for this position.
 
Compass is recruiting skilled and compassionate volunteers to join our Telephone Support Team (TSP). Volunteers involved in the TSP will assume the responsibility of providing outbound calls to clients, with the goal of providing emotional support to members of the Guelph-Wellington Community. TSP Volunteers will start in the program by completing social calls, safety/wellness checks, and/or providing medication reminders to isolated and distressed individuals before having the option to gain additional training and supporting our Distress Lines.

Callers on the Distress Line may be in a state of crisis, experiencing suicidal ideation, or have intentions of harming themselves or another individual. They may also be seeking external resources and referrals to agencies or are looking for a safe space to disclose personal struggles. Volunteers will use their discretion to identify how each client should be supported and will have access to staff supervision should any questions or concerns arise.

The Telephone Support team strives to meet the diverse needs of each client allowing opportunities to engage in conversations surrounding daily plans, storytelling, and exploring action plans to prepare for crisis intervention. Each call is made using a strengths-based and solution-focused approach with the common objective of assisting with goal planning, increasing the client’s ability to cope with unique situations, and referrals to community resources.

Responsibilities

•    Complete inbound and outbound calls with service users
•    Complete safety/wellness checks, provide medication reminders, and engage in social conversations with a diverse group of people
•    Assist with crisis intervention, when presented
•    Engage in conversations with members of the LGBTQ+ community through the texting support line

    Ontario Caregiver Organization, Online Services/Find Support
    Ontario
    Mentoring is a method of passing on lived experiences to support another caregiver in an empowering and meaningful way. Anyone who has been a caregiver will know that the caregiving role presents many challenges. These challenges will be different for every caregiver and from time to time support will be needed. 
     
    A Peer Mentor has a wealth of experience and knowledge which can help another caregiver with the challenges of their caregiving situation. Caregivers share a common identity and can create a bond through sharing their experiences. You can easily connect by phone or by online/virtual discussion with your Caregiver Participant without leaving your home. 
     
    An OCO trained peer mentor will: 
  • ‘Just be there’/Listen 
  • Provide encouragement, support and acceptance 
  • Acknowledge a caregiver’s strengths 
  • Share lived experience and give real life examples 
  • Discuss a caregiver’s wellbeing 
  • Provide support with developing coping strategies 
  • Provide relevant information 
  • Provide support to set goals the caregiver identifies 
  • Celebrate any goals the caregiver achieves 
  • Be someone for a caregiver to bounce ideas of

    The Ontario Caregiver Organization invites caregivers with diverse backgrounds from across Ontario to join our 1:1 Peer Support Program as a Peer Mentor. We are actively recruiting bilingual or multilingual caregivers who are fluent in English and also other languages.
